Hospitality Jobs Opportunities in Europe 2020

Hospitality Jobs Opportunities in Europe 2020

The fuss of the restaurant is like the background melody that never stops. The soft clanking of cutlery, the warm buzz of conversation, champagne bottles going pop. Waiters skilfully sneak around the tables. Barista grinds and brews the best drink ever existing in the world – coffee, and the smell drifts away. Bussers hastily carry away wiped clean plates without a notice. A hostess cheers new guests and walks them to the available table with the best view. A manager lurks and passionately observes how things are going. The kitchen has its romance. The chef is polishing up his masterpiece, while cooks follow the recipes with pinpoint accuracy.  

Good news. Hospitality jobs are on their way. Each one of these and many other positions will appear in the MeetFrank app. We are growing non-stop so do employment opportunities. The time has come, so please welcome a new Hospitality industry many of our users have been waiting for. Europe strongly holds its position as the top tourist destination. It means more jobs in the Hospitality industry than ever before.

Now I`ll throw some numbers that explain why MeetFrank takes this industry onboard and why you should care. 

Hospitality jobs in Finland

 

The figures show that Hospitality is one of Finland’s most dynamic industries. 

Helsinki Times reports that the turnover generated by this industry amounts to €15 billion and contributes to 2.6 % of Finland’s GDP. The revenue comes mainly from foreign visitors, the number of which keeps rising and is 8.3 million.

The number of nights spent by tourists has increased by 1.3 %, reaching an impressive figure of 6.8 million. The travel industry in Finland is steadily growing, and we see positive growth potential in the long run. 

The Hospitality industry currently employs around 150,000 people but is always craving for more. The Finnish Hospitality industry is facing a major deficit of talent, and companies experience difficulties in finding employees with matching skills. It slows down the growth of the industry. 

 

Hospitality jobs in Estonia

 

More than 5.2% positive change in foreign visitors arrivals shows that more tourists are coming and stay for longer. 

The number of nights spent by tourists has increased by 4.4 % compared to 2018, reaching 4.9 million

The Bank of Estonia estimates the proportion of expenses made by foreign visitors in the export of travel services to be almost 1.2 billion euros.

These numbers suggest that foreign visitors are a great opportunity for the Estonian market to boost the Hospitality Industry even more.

 

Hospitality jobs in Latvia

 

In Latvia, the hospitality industry is a fast-growing sector of the economy. Geographic location, rich cultural and historical heritage, as well as growth-oriented workforce, facilitate the growth. Those, who have been there, know what I am talking about. 

In 2018 foreign travelers checked in this beautiful country 7.8 million times, which is 0.6 % more than the year before. Tourists keep spending more and more € on their trips. Last year expenditures amounted to €750 million, which is more than a year ago. In 2018, 2.81 million visitors were hosted at tourist accommodation establishments of Latvia – 9.0 % more than the year before.

The hospitality industry in Latvia is expanding quickly by opening new hotels and restaurants. Due to accelerated development, the hospitality industry provided almost 75 000 jobs and accounted for 8.5% to total employment in Latvia. 

 

Hospitality jobs in Lithuania

 

2018 was the most successful year for Lithuania with regards to tourist inflow. The number reached 3.6 m tourists that visited Lithuania. 

The hospitality industry has its focus on the most successful foreign markets that bring the € in. Lithuania experienced rapid growth in the number of tourists coming from Germany and Japan. 

The interest of Lithuanians in their country keeps growing. The Lithuanian tourism market is divided in half. Lithuanians who traveled within the country and stayed in hotels cover 51.8% of the market, while foreigners make up the rest 48.2 % of the Lithuanian tourism market.

The successful 2019 raises great expectations for 2020. The goal in the hospitality industry will try to support and maintain the increasing inflows of tourists.

 

What`s in it for you? 

Opportunities, of course.

The hospitality industry sustains 16,6 million jobs in Europe, which means 1 in every 13 jobs. No more numbers, I promise. The markets experience a high demand for talents due to the upward trend in the Hospitality Industry. There is a positive correlation between the inflow of tourists and the growth trend in the Hospitality industry. The more days tourists spend in the country, the more work has to be done to provide them a service. At the same time, companies are unable to find the best talent fit and need extra hands. 

MeetFrank is here to ease it up with the new relocation feature that aims at filling the gap in companies when finding the best match employees. You as a skilled talent being in high demand will be able to see opportunities abroad and connect directly with companies in the Hospitality industry and not only. We believe that talent is borderless. In today’s age, it doesn’t always matter where you are based. You are free to choose your best career path based on aspirations, not location. And even better, in many cases, jobs can be completely remote.

Startup Week x MeetFrank 2019 Highlights

Startup Week x MeetFrank 2019 Highlights

A few words to mark the end of Startup Week, in Tallinn on 11-15 November 2019.

It went well.

In more than a few words, it was a spectacular, fun, surprising, valuable, and magical experience.

People smiled and occasionally laughed (keep in mind we are in Estonia). They made thoughtful facial expressions. People from different backgrounds, cultures, and experiences met with other people.

What can make it sound even better? The fact that there was an infusion of inspiration and collaborative ambiance.

MeetFrank collaborated with top Estonian startups and organized a series of office tours.

MeetFrank ➕ Skeleton Technologies

Skeleton Technologies opened the door to the world of ultracapacitors and fast energy storage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Supercapacitors are electric storage devices that can be fully recharged in seconds and release a large amount of power.

Technologies they develop could accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles and make electric cars cheaper and the air cleaner. Nice, right?

 

They shared with us a supercapacitor recipe. So please, take a note:

A pinch of salt, some carbon, curved graphene, and a piece of aluminum. Yummy!

Supercapacity cells they produce are super safe. They made it through burning, crushing, nail penetration and overcharging.

Thank you very much for opening your doors to us!

MeetFrank ⭐ Cyberland & Lokimo

Cyberland is a Software Product Development company.

They like to think of themselves as a metric-orientated company. Measuring success in metric-improvements is the key for them.

Normally, the business does not like experiments while decisions are too often made based on intuitions. At Cyberland they disagree – experimenting and finding the optimal solution is the key.

Deciding what to do while you’re traveling can be an extremely time-consuming and stressful task that takes away from your overall experience in a destination.

Lokimo is building an app to digitize tours. Experience the best local tours made by the best tour guides in town whenever you feel like it! They already have a 100% closing rate with their distributors.

We took a look at the office, get a glimpse of the work culture, and met the wonderful team!

They shared with us the key principles of successful project completion and how they measure its performance.

Basically, the process that makes them win at software development begins with the discovery of the business goal of the client, UX design, and development.

Thank you for having us!

Lokimo
